Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: LITTLE MISS SPORTY (1st)

Spot Play: OK GLADIATOR (4th)

Race 1

(5) LITTLE MISS SPORTY was tons the best last week in the opening leg and figures to be the filly to beat. (6) SOUTHWIND LUNA has hit the board in five of her last six starts, is versatile and will offer a short price. (2) CAVIART CARI ANN raced very well last week for Jones. She's hit the board in three of her last four and draws well.

Race 2

(3) MAGIC SHELLEY was a winner last week by open lengths and will offer a short price. (7) METS LIFE has hit the board in two of her last three and comes from the Baillargeon barn. (8) CUM LAUDE HALL was a beaten favourite last week for Zeron and settled for third. She's a good option again for the triactor.

Race 3

(6) TESSA SEELSTER is fresh off a win and has won two of her last three. (3) DUBLIN ROSE has hit the board in each of her last five starts this season and has excellent gate-speed. She's a logical option in this class with an inside post. (2) MISTRESS HILL has hit the board in two of her last three and comes from the Auciello barn.

Race 4

(2) OK GLADIATOR shows the speed despite a winless record this season. He faces a softer field and is due for a win. (4) DRAGON SEELSTER qualified sharply, draws inside and may command a nice price. He has the speed and comes from the MacDonell barn. (5) CASIMIR NUNZIO was an impressive winner in his latest at Flamboro and moves onto this circuit. He's versatile and should be able to drop multiple seconds on this bigger oval.

Race 5

(7) MISCHIEF SMILE was a winner last week by over three lengths and appears to be the filly to defeat. (6) MEADOW SEELSTER has been much better in each of her last two starts and draws well for trainer Budd. (5) TYMAL FIREITUP has hit the board in four of her last five starts, has excellent gate-speed and offered a nice price in her latest.

Race 6

(9) RAVE ON was a winner last week in this class, comes from the Johnson barn and likely will be the favourite when the gates unfold. (8) DAPPER DENZIL gets Jamieson again this week, is versatile and raced strongly last week to finish second. (7) SKY DESPERADO drops into this class, comes from the Fine barn and has a good overall record this season.

Race 7

(9) TOSCA receives major class relief and is overdue for her second win of the campaign. (10) WARRAWEE PRINCE comes from the Moreau barn and has been racing at his best in recent weeks. He may offer a fair price with a post 10 start. (7) ACAPULCO HALL was a beaten favourite last week and will look to rebound.

Race 8

(4) SHARK LEAP HANOVER raced well last week to finish fourth and is overdue for his first career win. He has the speed and gets MacDonald again. (8) NINETYMILE HANOVER will debut for trainer Auciello and that's the main reason for my selection. (9) BLISSFUL RIVER has a good record this season, gets Henry in the bike and offers terrific gate-speed. I'm price shopping and he's an option.

Race 9

(7) COCO LINDY has put together three straight wins and moves onto this circuit. He offers a lot of back class and comes from the Antonacci barn. (9) ROCKYS FIRST was a beaten favourite last week, but remains at this level and gets Jamieson. (10) STANDING MY GROUND was a winner last week in this class and is capable of overcoming post 10.

Race 10

(8) ROLLTIDEROLL has won two straight in this class and looks like the mare to beat. (3) BEST RISCUE draws inside and has finished second in each of her last two and three of her last four. (7) ALL CHOCOLATE is a price option in here. She gets a better post and has some upset potential.

Race 11

(1) KONA KID draws inside, comes from the McEneny barn and has been much better in his last two starts. (7) UTAH BEACH has been knocking on the door in his last four starts and can't be overlooked. (2) MAXI POWERS finally draws inside in his third career start and tends to finish off his miles very strong. He'll offer a shorter price this week with a better post.

Race 12

(8) MAJOR HOTTIE drops down into this bottom condition and will offer a low price. He hasn't been on his game as of late, but is hard to overlook in here. (6) BETTOR AGAIN also drops in class in his fifth start back and is due for a better effort. (1) NOBESTBFOR draws the rail, makes his second start for Baillargeon and closed very well last week.
